    We were seated promptly with our reservation. Greeted by a lovely hostess. Our waitress was awesome. Food was delicious and served hot. Cocktails were great I had the queen fish. It’s a large portion and very delicious. My hubby had fried trout with crab meat, it was a large portion as well. Both entrees were served with a house salad which were very cold and tasted excellent. Appetizer was seafood gumbo with rice on the side. It was very good! I wish they had a trio type meal to try a small taste of their specialities bec they all sounded so good. Only flaw, The restaurant could be updated a bit. But Overall a great experience! Definitely give it a try!

    I don’t get it. The food was horrible. The service great and the atmosphere lovely. The steak tasted like it was reheated after being cooked a day or two prior and had a bad taste. The crab claws were good but tiny. The salad was iceberg. The soft shell crab was heavily over fried in old oil. It certainly wasn’t good, it was really bad. I hope it was just an off day for their kitchen staff. $250 meal that was so disappointing.

    The food quality has severly changed for the worse. Nothing had flavor (in a nutshell). Gumbo has less ingredients. Seafood Pasta is really only a shrimp & crawfish pasta and bland. Bread is GREAT! Drinks superb. Service, very, very good. But several main dishes lacked any kind of preparation and quality. Oysters were bland and watery, no flavor. Fried shrimp had zero flavor but would work well as a kids dish. Several different steaks were flavorless (tender but no char and no effort to seasoning). Crab cakes were pretty good but the fried green tomatoes tasted like a frozen box dish. Double lobster dish was plain plain plain and the angel hair pasta might as well have been a garnish... don't eat it, you'll be disappointed. I would suggest Bobby start tasting what he's serving. There would be no need for this review because he knows what good food should taste like and this isn't it.

    Lived in Mobile, AL for 25 years and this was my first time visiting Mary Mahoney's Old French House. I was blown away by the ambiance, southern charm and the quality of the food is absolutely 10 out of 10. My wife and daughter both had the St. Patrick and it was prepared perfectly and was absolutely delicious. I had the prime rib and it was as good as I've ever had.

    From the time we were greeted at the door to the time we sat down it was a very comfortable experience. The food was very good, and I highly recomend the Gumbo. Our server Brittany was very knowledgable about the menu and history of the restaurant. When making reservations ask for the Garden room or Front porch.

    The Blackened Red Snapper with Crabmeat on top was outstanding . So many great choices it was difficult to decide . My salad with blue cheese dressing was delicious . The service could not have been better . Our server who was wearing a kelly green jacket was over the top . No surprise he has been there for 18 years . I will mention the ambience which was amazing . Beautiful antique table and chairs, many old photos of actors , musicians and famous people . Even a picture of Pres. Reagan who had dined there . Gorgeous art new and old dorned the walls including a magnificent portrait of Mary Mahoney . For a memorable, lovely dining experience , not to miss !!

    We sat outside. While the food and service were great, three people that were eating inside, came outside and sat at an empty table for a smoke behind is, ruining our meal and others around us. They then went back inside for their meal in a smoke-free environment. Smokers should be required to step away from other diners, away from tables. We do not choose to eat our food with the taste of smoke surrounding us. It ruined our experience and was a waste of our time snd money.
